Crisis On Infinite Disneys? Marv Wolfman Writes Epic Mickey 2

Crisis On Infinite Disneys? Marv Wolfman Writes Epic Mickey 2

Marv Wolfman, amongst many comic book acheivements, co-created the character Blade for Tomb Of Dracula. After the first movie was made, Wolfman sued Marvel for ownership rights but lost the case. As a result, Wolfman has stated he'd been blacklisted at Marvel.

However, that doesn't mean the parent company feel the same way. Talking about the upcoming game Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, game creator Warren Spector is quoted as saying;

"I made a creative decision the first time that was a mistake, to be honest, and I didn't want any of the characters speaking. In the new game we brought Marv Wolfman, an amazing comic book writer and now an amazing game writer, to help us with our story and to craft all the dialogue that the great voice talent read to bring the characters to life. Frank Welker is the voice of Oswald and he's so over-the-top wonderful. And when you hear Mickey and the other characters it ups the emotion level in the storytelling ability that we have."

It's been a good week for Marv, another game he's written for. Lives And Death, was also announced.

Utilizing the talents of award winning comic book writer, Marv Wolfman, Frima has created a film noir universe, with a slight twinge of the supernatural. The majority of the game takes place inside the abandoned Coronado Hotel, where players will take on the role of Philip Bester, a private investigator, who has lost his memory and is searching for messages he left for himself. Frima emphasized that the game was highly story driven and there were very few characters, specifically noting one mysterious woman in red. The basic plot description given to us sounded very reminiscent of Christopher Nolan's Memento. But the interesting aspect to this game is the split realities.
